Foo Fighters x Tatenokawa Hansho Gin Junmai Daiginjo "Midnight Silver"
A Junmai Daiginjo sake created to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Foo Fighters and the release of their 10th album "Medicine At Midnight". This HANSHO Silver was brewed while listening to the music of the Foo Fighters. The band's the rock aspects inspired us to create a heavy and expressive flavor with a sharp aftertaste. It has a well-structured mouthfeel and a dignified appearance. Please enjoy it to the music of the Foo Fighters!! - Tatenokawa
The nose on this rock band inspired brew is a wicked collection of lemon custard, almond, watermelon, pineapple, peach, pomegranate, and herbal tea aromas. Made with the sake brewing rice varietal called Omachi, this rock star sake is smooth, crisp, clean, dry and has a very impressive vivid finish. Complex, tangy, and mouth watering there is a tremendous watery quality with a medium body that hides a subtle umami rush. Look for a veritable buffet of lemon yogurt, peach, citrus icing, grapefruit, watermelon, and steamed rice flavors that drink both tart and savory. The overall drinkability of this brew speaks to red wine drinkers who like a big mouth, big adventure, and big complexity in a very playful fun fluid that excels in a wine glass. WORD: Expressive WINE: Sharp Reds/Heavy Whites BEER: Sour Ales FOODS: Meats, fowl, game, grilled, salty, savory, complex cuisines. - Beau Timken
